Hi guys,

I'm got a huge list of contacts in Outlook, a number of which I have assigned to a distribution list. Now, a collegue of mine wants to me to send him this distribution list, with all the contacts' email addresses and phone/fax numbers. However, every time I try to "save as" Outlook Message format, or indeed any other kind of format, it only saves the list with the email addresses, not the fax and phone numbers. Is there any way I can send this distribution list over with all the details he needs?

Reps for anyone that can help! Thanks.

I would think the best way to do that is to send him the Distribution List, and at the same time export the individual contacts associated with it, thus pulling all their information, into a .CSV file.

Have him import both, should do the trick.

Well send him the Distribution list as normal, and then what you want to do is select the contacts individually by CTRL + Clicking on them - go to File, Import/Export - Export to a File, select .CSV and then bam.

Then, have him import :)

I'll give it a bash thanks. Is that really the easiest way to do this? MS should be ashamed of themselves!

Reps to you Chief!

Well Distribution Lists are mostly for e-mail, unfortunately that is the only information it pulls when you export them. There may be an easier way, but I'm not sure how :eek:

Logically, you can't send a fax or call the whole distribution list through Outlook :D

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
